Two men have been injured after the car they were driving on Interstate 95 in Palm Beach County became airborne and went over a highway overpass, landing on I-195 below and hitting another car, whose driver and a 19-year-old were also injured.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol officials, a 38-year-old man and another 21-year- old, both of the 200 block of Wellington Road in Palm Beach County, were critically injured. A 35-year-old of the 1200 block of Delray Beach, and his 19-year-old passenger was also traveling east on I-195. They were taken to the Delray Medical Center.
The 35-year -had been discharged from the hospital, according to a Delray Medical Center spokeswoman. The 19-year-old is still receiving medical attention.
According to a FHP Sergeant, a preliminary investigation by troopers and Palm Beach crash team indicated that 38-year-old was traveling north on I-95, when he lost control of his 2006 Ford Focus and hit the guardrail on the left side of the road.
After hitting the guardrail, according to police, the Ford became airborne and landed on the eastbound portion of I-195, where it struck a 2002 Chevy Suburban.
I-195 eastbound near I-95 was closed after the accident for about three hours.
